The IEEE standards for local area networks. The spanning tree algorithm is defined in IEEE 802.1 (under consideration), Logical Link Control (LLC, the upper portion of the data link layer) in IEEE 802.2, Ethernet in IEEE 802.3, Token Bus in IEEE 802.4 and IBM Token Ring in IEEE 802.5.
The equivalent ISO standard is IS 8802.

(Networks) The IEEE standard defining Logical Link Control (LLC, the upper portion of the data link layer) for local area networks. (1995-02-14)
- Ieee 802.3
networking The IEEE standard defining the hardware layer and transport layer of (a varient of) Ethernet. The maximum segment length is 500m and the maximum total length is 2.5km. The maximum number of hosts is 1024. The maximum packet size is 1518 bytes. If the upper layer protocol submits a PDU less than 64 bytes, […]
